4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Options offer variety and cost isn't outrageous.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Allen College is very small. It doesn't have much of a "campus-life." It is very welcoming and close knit though.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Allen College is a great school to further your career in nursing. They truly care about your success and want to do anything they can to aid in your success.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather somewhat makes travel difficult to school.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Allen College has a hassle free application that is fairly standard. You apply for all of the general scholarships and then they use your information to narrow it down from there.

4 College Junior

Administration: Since I do not live on campus, and most students don't, strictness doesn't really impact social lives. However academically is it the normal standards.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe at Allen. I haven't ever had a problem.

3 College Junior

Academics: Classes at Allen are tough, but defiantly manageable, after all it is nursing school. Teachers are always willing to help, and are knowledgeable about the topics they teach on, while also providing real world experiences and stories.

3 College Junior

Academics: I am just starting my second semester, so i am still a little new at everything. So far Allen has been a great school, instructors are knowledgeable and helpful when working with students. Most of the classes are "team taught" which does take a little time to get use to. But all together i would recommend Allen to others.

3 College Senior

Majors: some of the classes are crammed into too short of a time.

5 College Junior

Academics: Academic Excellence and Grade a Staff – At Allen College the instructors/professors are fabulous! They have a solid base of knowledge to provide students with superior guidance, mentoring, and leadership. The administrative staff at Allen College are over-the-top in assistance. They want all students to have a great opportunity that is worry-free and it shows!

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: At Allen College you will find amazing students! The students represent a variety of cultures and all seem to blend well!

3 College Junior

Transportation: Personal Vehicle – Public transportation in Waterloo is pretty much nonexistent. Safest bet is to have your own car.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Um, yeah, Allen is a college of nursing so most of the students are girls. Girls rock!

4 College Junior

Local Area: Small Town Charm – The Waterloo/Cedar Falls area is a mid-size town with a small town atmosphere. Nestled on the banks of the picturesque Cedar River, the scenery is sure to please. With so many things to do and see you are sure to find something to suit your interest.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Great College, Over Priced Though – I would attend Allen because it is a great college for nursing and the difficulty of the classes is great because it will help me be a better nurse. The price is overpriced though, it is outrageously expensive and they have a nursing shortage so they accept even fewer people.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The School Is Average for Strictness – The strictness at the school is descent. It is really important to stay on task at most times, but the professors can be laid back also.

5 College Junior

Parking: No tickets or fines. Need a car because campus is on the edge of town in Waterloo and most people live in Cedar Falls but you could probably find someone to car pool with. Don't have to walk far to class.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: They have very little housing and what they do have is very expensive. Very little social activities everything is based on academics.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety is excellent. Last year there were no crimes committed on campus. We have security cameras in the buildings. There are only two building very close together and the parking lot is right next to the buildings for safety. Lots of lighting in the parking lot for night time classes.
